Mike. 27-year-old Wisconsin born-and-raised, working as a sports editor at a media group in Fond du Lac.
Probably not wearing pants.
Trying to become a little more awesome every day.
I love movies, rock music, Brett Favre and my Wisconsin sports teams (Packers, Badgers, Brewers). You'll see a lot of each on here.
Some of my favorite bands include: Halestorm, Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, Trapt, Chevelle, Paramore, Sevendust, Disturbed, Flyleaf, Led Zeppelin and E.S. Posthumus

The editor of a high school newspaper here recently wrote a cover story on rape culture in the school. It was excellently written. So much so, that other teachers presented it in class as a testament to superior grammar abilities. The author is one of the school’s top students. She has a full-ride academic scholarship to a good east coast school. You can view the story here.
Well now, the principal has enacted a new policy that any feature story for the school paper must be approved by him. He met the author’s adviser and said that if it were up to him, the story would not have been published.
And now EVERYONE in the school — one of the largest in the state — is very pissed off. Our city newspaper got word of it, and we’re trying to spread the word. The author of the story is coming in to our office tomorrow to give our editor an interview, and I’m really hoping we turn out a good story about it. She’s already written and posted a letter to the principal that everyone is sharing. Check it out here.
I’d love to see this get picked up by more media. Even if it’s just statewide.
A student-formed petition has now been started. And kids have been writing numerous letters to the principal that they’ve shared through Twitter.@2 hours ago with 27 notes
complexguysweetheart asked: Thank you for bringing attention to this issue on Tumblr! The author of the article and the petitioners are my friends, and that's my former paper and high school. Good to see word getting out.
No problem. It’s an issue that deserved to be shared. I’m interested to see what story our paper puts out. It should help shed more light on it.@54 minutes ago
